Learn through play, discovering how toys worked before battery power and computer games.
After a brief introduction to old fashioned toys, children will enjoy learning through play, discovering how toys worked before battery power and computer games and be inspired to make their own optical illusion toy to take back to school with them.
Our popular, hands-on workshops are led by a member of the Museum Learning Team and have a mixture of replica and original objects for your class to explore and enjoy. Plus, children get to make something to take home on the day.
Lasting approximately 1 hour (start times: 10am, 11.15am and 1pm)
Suitable for Key Stage 1 and 2
£35 per workshop (up to 30 children), plus £1.50 museum admission charge per child
